Hyaluronic acid is a substance that can be found in all living organisms.
It is capable of binding enormous quantities of water (up to six litres of water per gram).
Depending on the formulation of the hyaluronic acid, the effects may last for 6 – 12 months. Designed for specific applications, various products with gel particles of different sizes are available.
For cosmetic applications hyaluronic acid is available in the form of synthetic products, i.e. not of animal origin and therefore free of allergens, germs and impurities: Belotero®, Softline®, Softline Max®, Surgiderm®, Prevelle®, Puragen®, Restylane®, Restylane Fine Lines® , Perlane® und Hylaform® - Markennamen belassen?.
These implants do not require an allergy test.
